Child Sponsorship in Nepal is very much needed. Two-third of Nepal’s children are severely deprived and 40% live in absolute poverty. This is due to a decade long civil war and political instability. Children are deprived of their basic right to education due to poverty, underdevelopment, mass illiteracy and socioeconomic problems. Socioeconomic problems are child labor, girl trafficking, bonded labor and discrimination against female children. Many families lack sufficient resources, both physical and social, making their children more vulnerable to illiteracy and poverty.
Volunteer Society Nepal dedicates itself to social development through supporting the family unit by providing social service resources and financial/material assistance, enabling the children to access their basic right of education.
Your sponsorship will directly enable children to take advantage of alternative opportunities and break the cycle of oppression. Sponsoring a child from Nepal is a rewarding and heart-full experience. The sponsorship gives each child the chance to get the maximum level of school education that is available in Nepal. This gives them a better grounding in English and the main subjects required for college and further education. It is a real chance to make their future brighter.
Education is a main priority to create long-term options for the future of the children. This sponsorship gives you the opportunity to really experience the difference you can make by helping one person. To have a life opportunity they would not otherwise have. It also gives the child the chance to have a friend who cares about their future and well-being. Imagine how it can feel to have someone thinking about you and your welfare; even if they are far away.
It costs 500 euro per year to sponsor a child in a private school.
The sponsorship covers the cost of the school fees, school uniforms, books, pens, school outings, incidental costs, and lunches. It will also cover one full medical check up per year and one set of casual clothes. For the ‘babies’ and pre-school children the sponsorship covers pre-school (baby school) and extras such as nappies and additional medical support as required.
To help these children to further develop themselves, Volunteer Society Nepal offers them an After School Program that offers the opportunity to get guidance with their homework, explore their own ideas, create through art, connect through music, dance, and play games.
The children that go to the After School Program are sponsored by donors. Sponsors receive letters from their child twice a year, as well as photographs and information about the child’s academic progress.
There are many more potential children than we can currently serve. Sponsors are greatly needed. We encourage you to consider sponsoring a child.
Your sponsorship of 500 euro will pay all of a child’s After School Program for a year.
